Lost Boys of Sudan by Mark Bixler
Book DescriptionIn 2000, the United States began accepting 3,800 refugees from one of Africa's longest civil wars. They were just some of the thousands of young men, known as "Lost Boys," who had been orphaned or otherwise separated from their families in the chaos of a brutal conflict that has ravaged Sudan since 1983. "The Lost Boys of Sudan" focuses on four of these refugees: Jacob Magot, Peter Anyang, Daniel Khoch, and Marko Ayii. Like most of the Lost Boys who came to America, they had never before turned on a light switch, used a kitchen appliance, or ridden in a car or subway train - much less held a job or balanced a checkbook. This is the moving story of how Jacob, Peter, Daniel, and Marko faced the countless challenges of making it in a strange new place after years on the run in Sudan or in refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia.
